Here is boldly flavored, nutritious food at the leading edge of the dietary curve. Inspired by her long-standing interest in highly nutritious, waistline-friendly eating, caterer and cookbook author Fiona Carns developed the high-protein, low-GI eating regimen showcased here. High-quality, high-protein ingredients (including lean meats and fish) fill you up without the fat—while low-GI fruits, vegetables, and grains keep you going without blood glucose spikes.
Here are dozens of one-recipe meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that use minimally processed ingredients (but which are easy enough for everyday cooking)—plus 18 complementary sides and a half-dozen lowfat, low-GI desserts—food that is perfectly suited to our times.
“[In] this appealing and informative book. . . [Fiona Carns] offers filling, healthy, and tasty ways to improve one's diet with little sacrifice. . . For those looking to make small changes with big results, Carns provides an appetizing solution.”
“The fairly simple recipes are geared toward the everyday cook and use very few exotic ingredients (e.g., amaranth puffs). Dishes ranging from Eggplant, Spinach, and Ricotta Lasagna to Moroccan Lamb with Chickpeas and Spinach make the book a highly attractive choice for those looking beyond Atkins. Verdict Highly recommended for public and special libraries.”
